IN DEVELOPMENT: A NEW TV SERIES
We're currently in the thick of researching and developing a new genealogy documentary series for APTN. Conceived by Christian Medewar and Yves Bisaillon of Fata Morgana Productions, Warriors of the Great Wars takes young Aboriginal adults on a journey of discovery through the past to discover their ancestors who served in WWI and WWII. From snipers to pilots, nurses to foot soldiers, the series reveals the bravery and harsh realities of those who served in the World Wars. The series will be in development throughout the spring and summer.
WATCHERS OF THE NORTH PREMIERES THIS FALL!
Our new 6 part documentary-reality series, Watchers of the North, will be premiering on APTN this September 4. Keep posted for our series website launch, fun contests and lots of online activity all summer leading up to the premiere!
The series follows the off and on duty stories and adventures of male and female reservists in two closely knit Inuit communities : Gjoa Haven and Taloyoak, part of CRPG 1. The Canadian Rangers are made up of more than 4500 largely aboriginal Canadian Forces reservists across Canada, most often in coastal and remote northern communities.
